Lotsa catching up to do! Hope everyone is enjoying the week, and especially all our Canadian friends who enjoyed the long weekend!
Woohoo, it's a short week.. and the weekend is here already!
We were lucky to whisk away for a few days to Ucluelet, on the west coast of Vancouver Island!  It is just south of Tofino..lots of nice beaches - a favourite local spot for surfers!

Ellie insisted on tagging along, and this time, we gave in to her request ;)
This trip was just made for Ellie! Her first time at a beach, and running into the water..that tail would not stop wagging, lol.  Her face would light up every time we reached for the leash... she knew there was another great adventure waiting... :D


Are we there yet??
I can smell the fresh air!

The view at Black Rock Oceanfront Resort.
The beach was just steps away from our room!

"If I sneak away reeeaally slowly, maybe they won't see me!"

I'm a walruuus.. I lost me other side of the tusk! Ruh-oh!"

"I'm just MGM Lionin' around...
while Mummy checks her email"

At Long Beach in Tofino...

"I find sticks wherever I go!"

"HEY!! Who left these treats here!?! I CALL DIBS!!"

Rise and shine!

Hmm..that log is too big of a stick for you, Ellie :)

So wet!

Ready for the scene! Cue the fan - and action!
The heroic dog walks nonchalantly towards the harbour. 
(Great solemn expression, Ells!)

Bye, bye BlackRock Resort!

To our US friends, have a great Memorial Day weekend!
